Things We Love

Picnic Coffee Shop & Delicatessen

Picnic Cornwall


Picnic showcases the best of Cornish produce in a beautifully furnished coffee shop and delicatessen in the centre of Falmouth. When we’ve got a moment to spare, we love a bite to eat at Picnic.

Do go in and try some delicious organic pasties, local home baked pastries and cakes and there’s a little something in your room when you arrive at Highcliffe to help you splurge a little more. Yep, a special discount just for Highcliffe guests, yum.

Picnic is not just a place to nibble tasty treats and sip Cornish coffee though: oh no. You can order all their stuff in your very own picnic delivered anywhere in Falmouth for free. Think of it, you leave Highcliffe after breakfast stuffed to the rafters with a breakfast fit for a king and take on the urge to walk our beautiful coastal paths. By lunch you’ll be starving from all the fresh, sea air and what will you need? A picnic! Good job you booked it before you left.

Stones The Bakery

Stones Bakery Falmouth  

We love Stones' Bread. It's lovingly made everyday by the people who sell it to you in the shop. They are genuinly nice and are only too willing to help you with any bready questions you might have for them.
Our favourite is their organic spelt loaf which we always serve with Duck eggs and Kernow bacon but any of their loaves or cakes are delicious.
Stones is just at the bottom of the old Highstreet and we absolutely recommend a visit.

Beerwolf Books Freehouse

Beerwolf Books Falmouth


Whats truly unbelievable about Beerwolf is that it's all been done by 2 lovely young'uns' with brilliant taste in just about everything. Once runners of bookshops they have created a totally classy environment to enjoy a good book and a pint of local ale by the fire.
They opened in December 2012 and not surprisingly they've been busy ever since. The Beerwolf building is a grand building set back off the main highstreet, a hidden gem if you like.
You enter up the most gorgeous wooden stairs to see before you a small but very professional little book shop with loads of great titles. Turn around and under the stripped back original beams is a nice size bar and an eclectic mix of people all enjoying vibrant yet cosy surroundings very sensitively created but the owners.
Visiting Beerwolf whilst your here is a must. Don't walk past.

Prussia Cove

Prussia Cove Cornwall

Wow what a beautiful place. We found this during a beautiful sunny day in February. Just before you reach Penzance you'll see the sign for Prussia Cove and just the name alone creates the need to know more. We drove down the little winding road reversing here and there for passing traffic until suddenly we came upon the start of the Porth-En-Alls estate. It's like taking a step back in time and the journey on foot down to the cove past the many different cottages on the estate was like a childhood adventure.
This is a beautiful walk, a hidden gem which Cornwall offers up so brilliantly to those lucky enough to find it. If you want to propose, this is the spot to do it.
Come and stay and we'll show you how to get there.
